Following 2008’s spicy Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Woody Allen returns to his native city and unrivalled neurotic characters. This time the spotlight is on Boris Yellnikoff, an eccentric New Yorker, who abandons his upper-scale life to lead a more bohemian existence. A former professor of physics, Boris is a misanthrope who thinks the planet’s going to explode. When he meets Melody St. Ann Celestine, an innocent young girl from the south and her uptight family, the romantic entanglements that follow are highly improbable. Whatever Works is a relentless comedy about string theory, the chance factor in life, marriage, genius, cheating, and sexual awakenings. Boris is played by the legendary Larry David, creator of the series Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
